One day fairy tale in Bamberg
I was kinda skeptic about German small towns. When you Google it, they all look the same – flowers here and there, little colorful houses with brown roofs, seniors riding the bikes and kids chasing balloons. On Sunday morning my Argentinean friend Camila and I woke up to a spontaneous decision to go to a small town called Bamberg that so many people describe with big eyes. I was thinking about spending a good sunny day in a new city rather than be surprised by beauty.
However, Bamberg was a new perfect reality
We got to the city at 10 am when all the tourists were sleeping after a long Saturday night and headed straightly to the streets where only locals live.
Just try to feel what I felt. You walk a narrow street, all leaves are falling down creating red carpet under your feet and you see a granny walking with her golden retriever. She greets you “Guten Morgen” and passes you with a wide smile. The next man reaches you and says “Good morning” as well. Everyone treats you like a good neighbor.
We walked a lot that day. We visited all cathedrals, churches, and monasteries where a beautiful view was. The weather was better than wonderful and we chilled in the City Park with some homemade meat pancakes from my mom. Although the park was so small, the riverside was just taken out of reality.
When I will be a granny, I want to own a small house with such an amazing view and two dogs that will bring me morning newspapers every day. Haha, just perfect!
Bamberg has also plenty of big stores for Christmas decoration, for flowers, for postcards, for small umbrellas and for little cookies with some pinky cream on it. Oh, I was so hungry when I saw all those delicacies. Yam!
